Is skincare important to you? Do you pamper your skin the way you should?  Is your skincare regimen up to par? If you answered maybe or absolutely not to these questions, I may have the perfect solution for you.

I have sensitive skin and I learned the hard way that I cannot put anything that hits the market on my face without researching it vigorously. I tend break out in bumps and blotches that almost look like hives. When I carelessly apply products the allergic reactions to the by products in certain beauty items is instant. I also found out that I cannot use products that contain Alpha Hydroxy or Retinol. These ingredients can almost burn my skin to the point that I need to wash them off as soon as possible. So that changed the whole beauty game for me since I needed to search for skincare that would cater to my sensitivity! I only use a handful of items that are safe for me and it sucks to be limited to those few. But I believe I was at the right place at the right time and I have found my holy grail in body and skincare…Let me share what works for me!

Let me introduce you to Sensual Beauty and boy is this gonna change the way you take care of your face and body.

Let me introduce you to the beautiful owner of Sensual Beauty. Her name is Miss Zephorah Nure and this beautiful lady is also known for her famous legs! Hmmmm? I wonder why -Vava Voom LOL!

Did you lose your train of thought? Yeah I’m sure you did so let’s focus on this skincare  then come back to check out the pic of Miss Nure laterz. Okay so as I was saying, these Hawaiian Spa Bath & Beauty products are the bomb.com and I really cannot lie about it. Lets look at each of these products as a whole and individually shall we?

There are many products to this Hawaiian Spa Bath and Beauty Line but I decided to purchase a set for myself. I believe they may be purchased individually but I suggest purchasing a whole package as they all seem to compliment each other in one way or another.

I’m in love with this Mint Mud Masque!!!

Let’s start with my favorite product from the line – The Mint Mud Masque.  Before I discovered this masque I was using various products that were safe for sensitive skin but they weren’t my holy grail. This heavenly product came along and wow am I so excited with my results that I’ve almost ditched my other products. I use it two to three times a week as recommended and its made such a difference in the appearance of my skin. Before I had some pimples on my jawline and I’m highly allergic to Alpha Hydroxy and Retinol products and ever since I’ve been using this masque faithfully, my pimples have disappeared and my face is so much smoother and softer. All you do is apply some of this product on and wait for it to slightly dry and rinse or wipe off, thats it! That to me is fabulous and it smells like fresh mint just picked out of your garden. Gotta love it!

Next is the Gorgeous Gardenia Sea Minerals Hydra-Silk Renewing Lotion and this is also a gem in this product line. Its smells just like if you’re in a field of soft gardenia’s. So imagine putting this on your face and experiencing it for yourself. It smells yummy and I apply this after using my mint masque and my skin feels so soft and smooth and I’m ready for my day or night whichever one I prefer to use it for. Just apply and enjoy the way it makes you feel!

But wait …there’s more and here’s another gem to this line. The Sensual Sugar Scrub but this isn’t just any ordinary sugar scrub it has natural shea butter and honey. So when you smooth this on your skin it feels buttery soft and (please don’t do this LOL) its good enough to almost eat. You put it on your body, massage for a few minutes and it melts instantly making your application a pleasantly soft experience. This is a great product for your body but its also good for a before or after bikini wax soother. Note* Even though it says sugar scrub and it smells fabulous, do not apply this to the face area – only use on your body!

Okay, now I introduce to you the ultimate me time incentive. You have to admit that we all need that amazing quiet me time – I know I do and this is where I highly appreciate this product line. In the above picture I share with you the Gorgeous Gardenia Luxury Bubble Bath. Just turn the water on and pour little of this in there and Voila your ready for your ultimate take away relaxation moment. Get in and soak for as long as you like, when you’re done you will truly smell and feel the difference on your skin. If you love the smell of Gardenia and soft, silky, skin then you need this in your life!

Okay so there are a number of products in the Sensual Beauty line as you can see and  they can really make you feel sensuous and sexy. But here I give you another item that I simply LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Okay I have discovered that this Heavenly Hibiscus Silky Body Oil is an essential part of this beauty line. Why? Because this oil in my opinion completes the product line – its truly a must have! I love to use this oil after I wash my face at night, I just pour alittle on the palm of my hands and apply to my face and the next morning my face feels rejuvenated. You can also use this for your body especially your legs. Ladies, it’s summer and if you want those silky, soft, amazing looking legs – this is your go to product. You need this in your life! We all need this in our lives LOL!

Finally there’s one last product I want you to check out and thats the Pleasure Potion Tea! This tea is made with natural herbs and from what I’ve heard its an amazing relaxation drink. I can’t wait to try it myself – lord knows I need that! Check out the beautiful packaging and the can the product comes in…so pretty! If you’re not into all the spa products then at least try that pleasure potion tea – I’m sure once you try the tea the rest of the line will be of your interest!

Oh and I totally forgot to mention that this line was created with sensuality in mind so don’t be afraid to explore the sensuous side if these products with your significant other! Oh and Mothers day is coming up soon, doesn’t she deserve a day of spa treatment?

Hint, Hint: That sensuous oil sure does spark curiosity and the lovers imagination – okay, moving on….place your order today I highly recommend this for all the ladies that love  100 percent natural products in their body and skincare!

“COMPLETELY BARE,” DOWN THERE?

brazilian_waxing_white_bikini_beach_clean

Yes, there’s a reason for this season and thats for you to go “COMPLETELY BARE” – you know where! No, I’m not talking about landing strips or Brazilians…as much as you’d prolly like to hear about that if you you were a guy. I’m referring to getting rid of that unsightly winter coat and the recurring stubble that comes with leg and underarm hair. Yes, that yearly (for some) weekly ritual (for others) that is a must do in every woman’s itinerary. I would go the permeant hair removal route but thats for another post altogether LOL! My frustration with hair removal come with several gripes and so far I have 3 and here they are…

1. The need to go out and buy new razors every few weeks!

2. After you find your razor, you need to find an amazing shaving cream, thats where this post kicks in! No fear ladies, I’ve got a possible solution.

3. The attempt to shave without looking like you just got into a fight with a cat walking on your way to work…the band-aid company truly loves us LOL!

Let me elaborate on what its like to be a female in this era…we get our periods, we have babies which means we get stretch marks (which are beautiful in my opinion), we get menopause and all its symptoms because mother nature wasn’t finished with us yet, then when that’s settled and in its usual rhythm we still have to take off our body hair! Fellas, you sure do have it easy if you really think about it! But in all seriousness, us females just need a damn break every once in a while or for those that have money permanent solutions. No money no problem…lets refer to number one on my list, shall we?

Oh, the weekly or bi-weekly struggle – buying razors. I would love to congratulate the inventor of the razor – King Camp Gillette…you sir are a genius although you have made it a relentless struggle for most woman nowadays! There are about hundreds of brands of razors to choose from and if you’re like me you’ve got your personal favorite brand or you decide to skimp and buy the cheapest disposable brand there is (bad idea). If you’re in neither of these categories then you my lady are the one in the razor aisle looking and overlooking the descriptions and styles of all the different brands on the market! Buying razors is a trial and error scenario – you buy, try, and if it works for you hooray! You’ve been successful – at least in that area of your life. next on the list…Shaving creams!

Skintimate-Mandarin-Burst-and-Schick-Xtreme3-Hawaiian-Tropic-Razor-on-the-Shelf-at-Walmart-2

In this criteria, its also your preference but here is where I give you a heads up! I was a fervent user of the Skintimate line of shaving creams which were good but I wanted a different kind of shave. One that left my skin with the ultimate baby smooth feel and appearance – this cream did that but I felt like I was needing to try other shaving creams just to shake up my routine a bit. So I took advantage of Ulta’s 21 days of beauty and purchased the Completely Bare Moisturizing No-Bump Shave Gel and I think I have found an amazing product that is one of the best creams for us ladies that are shave happy!

IMG_1013

Hypo-allergenic and a People’s beauty Award favorite…awesome!

IMG_1014

Ladies, I’ve been using this product and I kid you not – I got an amazing shave out of this product. What makes this product different is that its a gel and not a foam which to me makes a heck of a difference when shaving and the smell is truly a fresh scent but in a happy sense. Trust me, I’m not one to buy items that have harsh, rub me the wrong way scents. I love clean, soft, flowery, happy scents and this is totally it. The shave that you get from this product is different but in an awesome way and the blade just glides across your skin giving you an effortless, soft, smooth shave.

IMG_1016

No foam here just a clear gel that is heaven on your skin!

IMG_1011

Love how smooth my legs look..

IMG_1010no  nicks or cuts – a plus in my book!

Now on to my third gripe…

how-to-get-rid-of-razor-bumps-on-bikini-area

Oh yes, the cat fight LOL! Well, don’t tell me you haven’t experience scrapes, cuts, and nicks from shaving. I have and yes the band-aid company was and sometimes is still my best friend LOL. You may argue that it could be your dull razor – Yes, it could be your razor but it could also be your shaving product. You may not believe it but it does make a heck of a difference what kind of shaving cream you use. At least for me it does and I’m currently in love with this gel and I highly do recommend it if you’re looking for a different product to replace what you are using at the moment.

Oh and for the final thought…

Did you actually think I was gonna even remotely talk about the hair down there LOL…I didn’t but at least now you have options. Thanks for stopping by…..

Steven5

I have mentioned in some of my blog posts that I am appreciative of the people that I meet in this new chapter of my life. I feel so excited and am so eager to learn from every experience along the way. While attending a photoshoot in New York City, I had been introduced to a phenomenal photographer named Steven Bagley. I didn’t know who he was until I was told that he has photographed major models and celebrities, now I was intrigued. The rich and famous fly him all over the world to be photographed and his work does not lie, he also specializing in photographing the most beautiful women using natural light and his surroundings.  He has also won Model Mayhem’s Photographer of the year, now thats a huge accomplishment, congrats to you Steven – well deserved. I have seen his amazing photos and they are truly works of beauty and art. Heck, I even want to purchase one of his photos so that I can frame it and hang it in my bedroom, thats how amazing his work is. He has a vision and he produces the most amazing photographs I have ever laid my eyes upon.

Who is this phenomenal photographer? Steven Bagley was born in Philadephia in a family of photography lovers. He left home at the age of 19 to travel and in Rome he studied to become a film editor and worked as an assistant film editor for NDR in Hamburg and Radio Bremen in Germany.

Steven Bagley, an amazing, talented photographer!

Now what do you think of his work! Amazing right? This man is so talented and he is such a professional at what he does that even the models at a photoshoot that I was invited to were feeling so comfortable in their environment. Now that should tell you what kind of person he is. He is always smiling, is very polite, and accommodating. So if your ever in NYC and want to do a photoshoot with him for whatever occasion it may be, get ahold of him. I recommend him for all your photo needs and from the looks of his work its so worth it!
